“The Ally, friend or partner that the hero can rely on in this quest.
They can provide a distraction, knowledge or just an extra pair of hands.
Wrap your laughing gear around this is an Aussie colloquialism (eat this). My hybrid Kookaburra/man is being his authentic self – brandishing his Golden Gaytime or encouraging the observer to have one?”
About the Artist
“I like it when I get a physical reaction from people when they view my art. The whimsy, fun and sometimes political nature of life is evident in my work. By expressing the fierceness of a female, the ridiculous in a scenario, becomes a message turned into humour softening the blow, breaking down barriers. The expressionist nature of my work tries to blur the edges of reality and hopefully makes people smile, wonder, think and create conversation.”
